A draft flood study for the suburbs of Tomakin, Mossy Point, Broulee and Mogo, prepared by WMAwater on behalf of Eurobodalla Shire Council, is on currently public exhibition.

The results of the study are the first step in identifying the potential for flooding in the targeted river catchments. The consultants considered a mix of first-hand accounts from residents, historic flood marks, tidal data, rainfall records and modern modelling techniques in their research.

Council and the consultants are now eager to meet with the community again to present the draft study and two community information sessions will be held in June. The sessions will be held at the Tomakin Community Hall on Tuesday 7 June between 6pm and 8pm, and on Wednesday 8 June between 11am and 2pm. The community can drop in at any time between these hours to meet with Council staff and representatives from WMA Water.

The draft flood study, which was prepared with the technical advice and financial support of the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage, is now on public exhibition and Council is seeking comments from the community until close of business on Friday 24 June.

The study is available for viewing or overnight loan from the Batemans Bay and Moruya Libraries. An additional copy is available for viewing at the Moruya Administration Centre. You can also download or read the study by visiting www.esc.nsw.gov.au under public exhibition.
